  • This is one of the best looking wp app, and probably the best alarm app we have. Hats down to this developer, full support for him
  • Hats off... ;-)
  • Do i need to change region to download this app ?
  • No.
  • Not had this app for.many weeks and use it loads already, great to see so many updates too !!!
  • Ooh a lot of additions! I never knew that there were live tile backgrounds in there.
  • Neither did I :D
  • The developer said that it doesn't work during quiet hrs, that is a deal breaker for me. Otherwise, a great app.
  • huh? it worked for me during quiet hours before?
  • From what I understand from the dev is that some change MSFT made to Windows is what causes it to not work during quiet hours.  He suggested that a fix will be coming from MSFT on that front (giving 3rd party alarm apps the same functionality as the first party app).  
  • What's the in-appp purchase realarm unlock for? Is that necessary?
  • it unlocks more features, such as backing up all of your alarms to onedrive and allowing you to restore them and many more things.
  • Yeah, many more...duh.
  • I really wish Microsoft will allow devs to change the size and location of the snooze button. I would love the to have the option of a large snooze. I accidentally hit dismiss once.
  • You are not the only one thinking that...
  • Never used it but will lov it downloading now
  • This app just today didn't ring for 8 alarms and nearly got me in HUGE trouble (my presentation was cancelled by the customer last minute). This is the first time it has happened in 3 months, I don't know what to think, still in shock thinking about it.
  • Realarm or Realarm Beta? I have to say this is one of the best and most stable apps I've used.
  • If you have been using the app for 3 months, then you obviously have been using WP app previously. Current version is UWP app, which means that Quiet Hours now applies on that. I guess Quiet Hours was enabled at that time. If not, then check other problems - there is a page in the app for that, it's called 'Problem with alarms?'. It solves 99% of cases with alarms. Many users reported that 'Show and sound alarms and reminders when screen is locked' was disabled by default.
  • If it doesn't play music from SD, there should be option in store to save it to internal memory.
    Want me to go search settings and go through the hassle of switching the saving location because of this? Not going to happen I'm afraid.
  • You can move the app separately once it's installed.
  • Couldn't see the update. Still on version
  • Nice to see background can be turned off. Keep it transparant.
  • MS should hire him to make their own alarm like this if the default alarm app would be so good as this one then MS would have a great preinstalled app that would allow us to brag about :P
  • Brilliant wp app. Just wondered what happened to the quiet hours bypass. Used to work a few versions ago. Updated and woke up late for work.
